  • COLUMN: Beware the old man in the hat

    I’ve spent the last few weeks driving down Memory Lane and came across this column from 1995. Funny how some things have changed – while others – like the old man in the hat – never do.
    I like driving on the old E’town Road.
    It’s not as scenic, but it’s faster than the parkway unless I get behind HIM.
    Him who?
    The man of my nightmares –
    The man who inspired the theme to “The Twilight Zone” –
    The old man in the hat.
